A heat wave at the start of the year led many cows to seek shelter in the shadow of trees. Sometimes trees in the paddock where they were grazing, but sometimes also crossing fences and going to adjacent farms. Then mid-January we had plenty of rainfall (approx. 250 ml in a week time). That led to some flooding of small creeks and the fences near the creeks were damaged there as well. Again cows crossing to neighboring fields. It means we had to repair fences at several farms at the beginning of February.
